Python Code to Shuffle Deck of Cards
In this program, you’ll learn to shuffle a deck of cards using random module.
# Python program to shuffle a deck of card # importing modules import itertools, random # make a deck of cards deck = list(itertools.product(range(1,14),['Spade','Heart','Diamond','Club'])) # shuffle the cards random.shuffle(deck) # draw five cards print("You got:") for i in range(5): print(deck[i], "of", deck[i])
You got: 5 of Heart 1 of Heart 8 of Spade 12 of Spade 4 of Spade
Note: Run the program again to shuffle the cards.
In the program, we used the
product() function in
itertools module to create a deck of cards. This function performs the Cartesian product of the two sequences.
The two sequences are numbers from 1 to 13 and the four suits. So, altogether we have 13 * 4 = 52 items in the deck with each card as a tuple. For example,
deck = (1, 'Spade')
Our deck is ordered, so we shuffle it using the function
Finally, we draw the first five cards and display it to the user. We will get different output each time you run this program as shown in our two outputs.
Here we have used the standard modules
random that comes with Python.
